DEAL CLOSE? La Liga star confirms Arsenal transfer talks 0

Posted on January 19, 2015 by admin

Some Arsenal fans have reacted with frustration and are exasperated by the throwaway comments made by Arsene Wenger yesterday about his search for a defender, as reported by But I would take the manager’s comments with a pinch of salt if I were you.

Wenger said, “We are still looking, yes.

“Unfortunately no [progress], but if you have a good idea, you can text me somewhere to the club!”

Arsenal starting XI for Man City with NO Ozil or Walcott 1

Posted on January 18, 2015 by admin

The Arsenal boss all of a sudden has a different sort of problem on his hands, but it is the sort of problem he would have loved to be struggling with all season, tough decisions about which players from a strong squad to put in the starting line-up.

With Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs and Calum Chambers all back in contention, Arsene Wenger has some big calls today and one of the biggest is on our club record signing. In another game I think the boss would have brought our German midfielder back in, but away to Man City is too big a game to risk a rusty Ozil, especially when the players he might replace are doing so well.

Walcott believes Arsenal’s pace is TOO MUCH for Man City 0

Posted on January 18, 2015 by admin

One of the major attributes in the game of the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott over the years has been his blistering pace. In fact, in his early years Walcott was heavily criticised for being all about the pace, about the pace, no treble (sorry).

But he has really worked on the rest of his game and improved his finishing so those critics, like Alan Hansen, have been proved wrong. But his pace is still one of his biggest dangers, although now the Gunners have more than just him who is able to blow the opposing players away with their speed.

Pellegrini: “Alexis Sánchez is Premier League’s best player…” by RC

This Sunday sees Manchester City welcome Arsenal to the Etihad in what promises to be a spicy encounter after last season’s 6-3 epic.

Back in September the two teams met at the Emirates in a hard fought 2-2 draw. A game which entertained the fans throughout and saw the debuts of both Frank Lampard and Danny Welbeck. Goals from Jack Wilshere, Martín Demichelis and one each by Alexis Sánchez and Sergio Agüero saw the two sides match each other blow for blow.

Arsenal star Sanchez ready to inflict DOUBLE pain on Man City 1

Posted on January 17, 2015 by admin

After a recent upturn in form and results and with the Arsenal injury list getting back to a normal sort of size, Arsene Wenger and the players will be heading north to face Man City tomorrow with a restores sense of self-belief and a good chance of beating the Premier League champions Man City on their own turf.

And one of the major reasons for that confidence is the excellent form of our summer signing from Barcelona, the one and only Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean has settled into his career at Arsenal and into the rigours of the Premier League like a duck to water and even with stars like Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott back in the team, Alexis stands head and shoulders above his team mates.

Arsenal target drops HUGE hint on January transfer! 0

Posted on January 15, 2015 by admin

While the Arsenal fans are understandably feeling a bit impatient and are keen for Arsene Wenger to get some good signings made in the January transfer window, I am sure that the manager and his back room staff are working hard to get the right players into the club.

Wenger has said before that he would not make transfers in the January window just for the sake of it, so he clearly does not like a stop gap solution, even if the Gunners are looking seriously stretched in a few key areas. One of those, clearly, is in defence, especially now that Mathieu Debuchy has dislocated his shoulder and looks set to miss the next three months of the season.

DONE DEAL? Arsenal set to complete midfield transfer! 3

Posted on January 14, 2015 by admin

This Arsenal transfer rumour was supposed to have been a done deal a week or two ago, but there have been some recent complications as the Gunners tried to complete the signing of the very promising young Polish player Krystian Bielik.

The Bundesliga club Hamburg have thrown their lot in and tried to hijack the deal, which was apparently being held up as Arsenal and his current club Legia Warsaw could not agree on the transfer fee. However, the defensive midfielder now looks like becoming a Gunner very soon as a Metro report claims that we have finally agreed terms and had our latest transfer bid for the 17-year old accepted.

Arsenal set to SEAL DEAL for Gundogan transfer!! 3

Posted on January 13, 2015 by admin

Get ready to be happy Arsenal fans! At least if the latest Arsenal transfer rumours about our search for a central midfielder to add the steel to the Gunners creative but somewhat lightweight midfield are true that is.

Because the Metro and other media outlets are reporting that Arsenal are on the verge of completing the transfer of the Borussia Dortmund and Germany star Ilkay Gundogan. The report says that officials of the two clubs are due to thrash out the details of the 24-year old’s move from the Bundesliga to the Premier League this week.

Arsenal boss ready for defender transfer NOW! 0

Posted on January 13, 2015 by admin

We are all used to Arsene Wenger being very tight lipped and playing his Arsenal transfer cards close to his chest, so when you get a straight answer from the Frenchman it is a pretty good sign. Hopefully that means that the Gunners will soon have another defender in the squad, as Wenger admitted after the weekend win over Stoke City that he was in the market for a defensive transfer.

As reported by, the boss revealed his intent to move for a defender in the transfer markey was strong before the match, so after losing Mathieu Debuchy to a shoulder injury that could keep the French right back out for a while, that need is even more urgent.

Arsenal need MORE than 3 points! We need BIG win!! 0

Posted on January 11, 2015 by admin

Of course it is absolutely vital for Arsenal to get a home win over the visitors Stoke City today. We have a great chance to go above our north London rivals Tottenham in the Premier League table and level on points with fourth placed Southampton.

And with our next EPL game being away to the current champions Manchester City, it is even more important for the Gunners to make the most of today’s very winnable game at the Emirates. But I do not want us to be just falling over the line at the final whistle.
